Mirafone 188-5U
Manufactured in July 1995.

History:
Purchased from Whichita Band Company in 2010.
Professionally cleaned twice a year and regularly cleaned every month.

Repairs:
There was a soldering break once on the receiver bracket that was repaired at some cost to the lacquer on the receiver.

Dings and such:
There is some lacquer wear from time, and some solvent that a repairman got on the bell, most of it is shown in the pictures.

Intonation:
The intonation the horn is very "point and shoot" except for the Eb in the staff (Eb3), which plays a flat. This is solved by playing it in the 2-3 combination.
*important note*
This horn has the older fifth valve, and it lower the horn by two whole steps (making low F 5-2-3)

Price and Shipping:
I'm asking $6750 with a Miraphone gig bag and hard case. Any shipping must be covered by the buyer. I am willing to drive up to 100 miles to meet a potential buyer for play testing.
